This three-day immersive workshop will concentrate on the use of photography and the Encaustic technique, focusing on the beautiful aspect of memory found in both media.  We will open the workshop with a discussion tracing the historical relationship between painting and photography, tracing a line from early tintypes to Degas, Muybridge, Cornell, Rauschenberg, the Starn Twins, Kiefer and to its present day uses.  We will be demonstrating techniques of pouring, fusing, working on different papers as well exploring deconstructing and distressing our images .  In addition, we will discuss archival techniques, methods of presentation, step-by-step instruction in the use of proper substrates, use of different papers, digital and collage techniques, as well as presentation – a “Digital for Dummies” (everything you were afraid to ask) to help you to create and produce your images.  An individualized materials list will be provided in advance after two one-hour Skype consultations with the instructor prior to the workshop to make sure you are prepared to maximize our time together. In these consultations we will prepare and discuss your choice of imagery, any pre-production (digital or distressing) you may need to do, choice of papers, collage elements, and substrates with which you need to be prepared to bring with you to the workshop. An email communication outlining what to expect and how to best prepare prior to these consultations will be sent prior to these consultation.
